Alternativtour is a Monchique based adventure tourism company which organises hiking walks, mountain biking tours, canoeing trips and climbing tours around Foia, Algarve’s highest point. The level of the activities is normally beginner as most tourist want to get a taste of the activities whilst on holiday as part of trying something different. The company is owned and solely run by Lucio, apart from the occasional intern. There are quite a few aspects we could help Lucio with. On the one hand he is building up an adventure park with indoor climbing wall, tree walk, paint balling and kids play area. As he is building it up all by hand to minimise the impact on the natural forest environment he minimises the use of machine like diggers is possible. Hence most things are done by hand e.g. leveling ground to make rest areas, build dry stone walls with the rocks that are lying around in close proximity, remove logs and potentially dangerous sticks off the ground. Secondly Lucio would like help with his marketing materials, his website especially.
